   schema:description ""Kerner's achievements, however, were eclipsed by his conviction on federal charges of mail fraud, bribery, perjury, and income tax evasion tied to his dealings in stock of an Illinois racetrack enterprise. Arguing that Kerner's incarceration related less to his misdeeds than to the zeal of federal investigators in attacking corruption in Illinois, Bill Barnhart and Gene Schlickman reveal how the prosecution of the popular ex-governor deepened the penetration of the federal government into state and local politics and coarsened attitudes toward public service."--Jacket."@en ;

   schema:description ""This broad-based study sets Kerner's life against a backdrop of pivotal events and issues in American politics over six decades.

His entire public career reflected his experiences as a decorated combat officer in World War II."--Jacket." ;
